The Conqueror's Stone by DJWP (Conqueror / Alt)


I wasn't a big Conqueror story kind of gal and very few conqueror stories really interested me but when DJWP wrote this absolutely fantastic piece I was overjoyed. It's a brilliant piece It's a Xena and Conqueror story rolled into one..that is OUR present Xena and the Conqueror. Very interesting.

Silences by Mayt

Lunacy's Review: One of the more moving hurt/comfort stories I've read in a while, Mayt's latest is a deeply emotional tale with very well-crafted, sophisticated characterizations and a particularly strong showing for the bard. Set just after a battle the two had been fighting in, the tale begins with Xena removing her badly hurt partner from the battlefield so she can minister to Gabrielle's injuries. When the bard finally awakens days later it is to a world of silence and a Xena growing more distant by the minute. Guilt-ridden and convinced Gabrielle would be better off without her, the warrior escorts the unsuspecting bard to the Amazons where her actions will forever change the course of their relationship bringing to the surface the dormant strength within the Amazon Queen and making the stubborn warrior realize just how desperately she needs her bard. Spanning a time period of several months, this story presents a fascinating challenge to the relationship and a treatment of our heroines that is refreshingly different. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

This week's XIPPY Bard & Fanfic of the Week is split between three awesome bards: XWPFanatic, Tonya Muir and T. Novan - three heavyweights in the Xenaverse bards. Exposure is INCREDIBLE.

Exposure by XWPFanatic, T Muir & T. Novan
Uber Alt

This is a continuing series based on a look behind the scenes of news team. Two people come together - it's hate at first sight. Kelsey is a successful anchor woman ready for big things in the new biz and Harper is a hot shot, harley driving, reporter with alot of flair! Mix them together and you have one of the best teams since Xena and Gabrielle <g> I enjoyed this series from the first episode.
